At Last Centurion Pit Bull Rescue, we work hard to find homes for those who waited.
Matchmaking is important because my goal is to make sure my dog is the happiest they could be. Last Centurion Pit Bull Rescue's slogan is "for those who waited" because I have no need to get these dogs out of my rescue. The only need I have is to find the best home. I know what they are looking for and together we will wait as long as we need to to find it.
The process starts with a foster application AND matchmaking quiz. When I evaluate the answers i will set up a meet and greet with the dog that matched. If desired, you may meet other dogs as well.
Then we need a home check. This can be in person or through the phone via pictures and videos of where the dog will sleep, eat, play, use the bathroom, and stay when you're not home. There should be a reasonable amount of supplies for the incoming dog even if this is your first pet. Be prepared for anything!
At the end of the day, my pick will need to be the first one you take for a day visit or sleep over. If after one day you really do not like the fit, you may ask to try the next one. If it's not one of my picks, I will give some rules that make sure my dog is happy even if the home is not exactly what I was originally looking for. Sometimes this means mandatory dog socializing in homes without dogs, flexibility on crate training or mess making, or a quiet place to rest if the home is too active. If you make it work for my dog, you can absolutely move on to adoption. I only pick the dog that would be the quickest to adapt to your home. If you'd like to adapt for a different dog, I would be just as pleased.
Once we are in agreement over which dog to move forward with, a mandatory 30 day foster period is required. During this time I need updates at least twice a week and evidence of keeping up with preventatives, food, baths, training, and love. At the end of 30 days, you may sign the adoption contract. If a dog still needs vetting, it is to be scheduled and added into the contract as a clause. Contact is void if vetting is not completed by date agreed on.
Please reach out with any questions.
I hope you find this method of adoption as beneficial to you as it is to me. Thank you for adopting.
